Munda is the largest settlement on the island of New Georgia in the Western Province of the Solomon Islands, and consists of a number of villages. Take a break from the city and head to Marovo Lagoon and Roviana Lagoon. Get out of town with these interesting Munda side-trips: Skull Island (in New Georgia) and Ghizo Island (in Ghizo Island). There's more to do: head off the coast to Kennedy Island and take in the dramatic natural features at Shark Point.

Plan my Munda trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Sydney, Australia to Munda is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales) (AEST) to Solomon Is. Time (SBT), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Traveling from Sydney in October, things will get somewhat warmer in Munda: highs are around 35°C and lows about 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can travel to Rennell Island.

The hustle and bustle of Honiara, the capital of Solomon Islands, provides a nice counterpoint to the slow pace and laid-back atmosphere in other areas of the country.
Visiting Mbonege Beach and Tenaru Falls will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at Vilu War Museum and Bonegi I and II. There's lots more to do: hunt for treasures at Honiara Central Market, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Holy Cross Cathedral, admire the natural beauty at Solomon Islands Memorial Garden, and head off the coast to Russell Islands.

For ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Honiara trip itinerary builder .

Explore your travel options from Rennell Island to Honiara with the Route module. In October, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
